Massive Attack‘s Robert Del Naja has released a new limited edition print of his ‘Help95’ artwork in support of War Child’s Gaza Appeal.
This is the latest chapter in the over two-decades-long partnership between Massive Attack and War Child, which recently saw the donation of the original artwork proof from UNKLE‘s War Stories to help fund the charity’s Coronavirus Appeal.
The ‘Help95’ archival print, which was originally used in the sleeve notes for the 1995 War Child compilation album HELP, has been reworked by Del Naja for a unique fire-sale, and is on sale from today, June 24.
All proceeds from sales of the print, which you can find here, will go directly towards the charity’s Gaza Appeal.
“With the news of a ceasefire, War Child staff in Gaza can now rapidly scale-up their response providing essential supplies and urgent psychological first aid to the thousands of children who have lost everything,” the organization said about their work in the region.
Rich Clarke, Head of War Child Records, added in a statement: “Massive Attack have been generous supporters of War Child for over a quarter of a century now, they are incredibly passionate about the causes they choose to help and we are extremely grateful to benefit from their support.
“The original image ‘Help95’ was donated by Rob to support the children and families caught in the Balkan Civil war in 1995 and resonates 25 years later with the desperate situation in Gaza.
“The money raised from the fire-sale will enable War Child to reach more children and give them the chance of a brighter future. We are extremely grateful to have Robert’s continued support to help us protect, educate and stand up for the rights of the children of Gaza.”
Last week, Massive Attack joined the list of artists who have inspired streetwear brand Supreme, with a new line of apparel featuring the band’s Mezzanine artwork.
The brand’s set dropped on June 17 and features football jerseys, button-downs and shorts. Each is available in a trio of colours, with designs drawn from the 1998 album’s iconic beetle artwork.
